“With the passing of Lady Margaret Thatcher, the world has lost a remarkable leader for individual liberty and freedom,” said Congressman Pittenger.  “We first met in 1991 when she visited Charlotte, and later enjoyed seeing her in London and exchanging correspondence through the years.  Her strength of character and unwavering and principled leadership helped shape my commitments to public policy.”
 
Congressman Pittenger brought Baroness Thatcher to Charlotte in 1991 as part of a series of foreign policy speeches by major world leaders.  Audio from her Charlotte speech is available below.
